About Change of Seasons:
John Oates was born at the perfect time, paralleling the birth of rock and roll. After he met and teamed up with Daryl Hall in the late 1960’s, they developed a style of music that was uniquely their own. They are the most successful pop duo in the world and members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And yet John’s story has never been told. Relying on his many handwritten journals, he brings to light many fascinating stories, ranging over his entire life, with a journalist’s eye and a poet’s heart. In Change of Seasons, John shares his highs, lows, triumphs, and failures. He takes the reader on a wild ride through all the eras, personalities, and music that have shaped him into who he is. www.JohnOates.com .

Chuck Berry

Chuck Berry was my hero…I wanted to play guitar like him and wanted to write songs like him even though I knew nothing I could come up with would ever come close to his originality, crisp, perfectly crafted lyrics and without knowing I even found myself a great piano player in Daryl Hall just like Chuck found Johnnie Johnson…it wasn’t planned but it happened. Every rock and roller in the world owes a debt to Chuck Berry. His songs will never die…”Hail Hail Rock and Roll.”

I’d like to offer a free download of my version of ” Let It Rock ” from my Mississippi Mile album…
